Ammo has been in relatively short supply since Bush left the Whitehouse. the re-election didn't help matters none. Then the Sandy Hook incident and subsequent possibility of new legislation caused a mass stockpiling frenzy for guns and ammo, even the lowly 22lr. Everybody has one.
 According to NRA interviews with top execs in the industry the shortage is merely a matter of demand far, far exceeding the manufacturing capacities. Manufactures of arms and ammo have been adding shifts in an effort to keep up. Expanding facilities is far too expensive and time consuming for what may be a relatively short term problem.
 The son in law works for Bass Pro and says they receive ammo and stock it by 8a.m. and it's gone by 10a.m. It's getting better, they do have some calibers left over, but the lowly 22 vanishes in a heartbeat.

Pretty much that way all over. Find some and stock up as much as they'll let you have. Better safe than sorry! O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

If I take a half day off work on Wednesdays & Thursdays, I can get 2 bricks and some hundred packs each week. But I'm hesitant to give up my vacation time to stand in line for 3 hours twice a week.

I'll just be judicious with what I have and try to wait it out.

Paid over what it was worth but i had almost no choice. This should be fine so i can order more online cause the last box i bought of 325 lasted a few years.
